    I must say lads it was a combined effort, the work that Niall carried out over the weekend behind the scenes went to the smooth running on the floor, the Stuart's on the day worked there socks off to keep the birds into Geoff , and lucky for him and stuarts the weather was mild to judge birds outside,
    So robbie, Dessie , Martin and dave if I have not all ready thanked you, please feel free to give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done, dave o Halloren go doing Security on Friday nigh (he told me after he has never slept with as many birds affraid ) and then staying to help out on the Saturday ,John graydon for running around behind the scenes ( he loves it ) and doing all those unseen tasks that go unnoticed .
    Martin McCabe for the last minute stuarting and giving up his Saturday much appreciated,
    So lads here is to hanging up the show cages for another year had a grate show season meeting old and new friends and looking forward to doing it all again next year hope you all breed loads
    And before I finish a big well done to all exhibitors that travelled from all corners to support and show there birds

    Very well done and thank you to Niall and Noel and everyone else who pitched in for superb show.
    Congrats to all the winners plus all those who entered birds( well done to David R, the lone ranger from the North for coming all the way down with his entry)
    A special thank you to Geoff, whose professionalism, knowledge and calmness set the tone for the whole show.
    Role on next year bounce bounce ..... the bar has been set.....

    Noels Cousin-whos name has gone out of my head and not even a part of the club for standing at the door all through the judging helping in any way he could putting labels on cages making geoff coffee and providing security of no one coming in and out of the hall top top man-hopefully we will get him keeping birds soon--(even after he saying that all the birds that noel showed were his lol! lol! lol! )

    My turn now to offer sincere thanks to all the guys at and around the show for unsurpassed hospitality and friendship throughout the weekend.
    It was good renewing acquaintances with guys I had met at the ACS , and to meeting other members from the forum etc.
    Although some will have been disappointed by the results of my judging, which is of course quite normal, there were no sour grapes that I detected, with everyone seeming genuinely pleased at their colleagues successes.
    A great event that went well and signals ongoing success for the future.Well done.

    I must of course especially thank Noel and Niall who took the major part in ensuring my transport arrangements were catered for, and for David for delivering me back at the airport.

    This was my first trip to Southern Ireland. I sincerely hope that it will not be my last.

    you were well received Geoff and the judging was very thorough. i have no doubt but that you will be back judging here again.
    the talk on the Sunday was great too in a very relaxed and humorous atmosphere. it was great of you to give that kind of time, not all judges would do that--especially with only one door out!!!!
